The words of Sara Mehalick who barricaded the front entrance of Vermont Gas today:
"Today I’m taking action because Vermont Gas is intent upon shackling our communities to fossil fuels, and condemning us to irreversible climate change. We have a responsibility to the communities whose land, water, and air are being poisoned by fracking, and we’re determined to make sure that this fracked gas pipeline does not move forward. Today we’re here to tell Vermont Gas to cancel their construction plans, or expect to see growing resistance."
Spectra Energy is expanding their pipeline network so that more fracked natural gas can be transported and ultimately exported out of the country.
All of these projects are set to be in service by 2017. The clock is ticking. It’s time to Ban Fracking and Stop Spectra.
We can Stop Cove Point from becoming a fracked gas export terminal - join the Energy Exports Action Camp in Maryland, June 2-9th

The Regional Summit was a success. A coalition has been formed to resist the Algonquin Pipeline Expansion.
The fight against the natural gas industry is growing everyday.

Resistance to the proposed natural gas export terminal at Cove Point, Maryland is picking up. In the past two weeks 8 people have been arrested in acts of civil disobedience. This resistance is only going to increase until the proposed export terminal is stopped.
Fracking for natural gas is not about “energy independence”, it is about capitalism. The gas industry is quickly building pipelines which lead to potential export terminals so that fracked natural gas can be exported. Once this happens domestic prices will sky rocket.
Natural gas is not the answer.
Big win in Kentucky in the battle against the Bluegrass Pipeline!
HB 31, a bill that would prevent the gas industry from using eminent domain to build infrastructure projects, though committee and now will be voted on by the full house of representatives.
